About 3DEO

Production Metal 3D Printing

Based in Los Angeles, 3DEO uses its patented metal 3D printing technology to supply small, complex stainless steel components to customers in the medical, defense, aerospace, and industrial equipment markets. 3DEO is an employee-owned company.

3DEO’s breakthrough Intelligent Layering® technology unlocks the potential of metal 3D printing in serial production by being directly competitive with traditional manufacturing in terms of part pricing, material properties, and quantities. 3DEO’s part properties exceed the high industry benchmark MPIF Standard 35 while achieving tight tolerances and a superior surface finish.

Parallel to its production business, 3DEO also operates an R&D center which is continually striving to improve and advance its manufacturing technology.

Work with us to realize the benefits of Moldless Manufacturing™.

World Class R&D

3DEO’s commitment to technical leadership in metal additive manufacturing is epitomized by the work that goes on in our research and development center. Here, our in-house staff of engineers, scientists, and technicians play an important role in continually developing next generation technologies, new products and improving existing products and processes.

Ongoing R&D programs in such areas as materials science, physical metallurgy, analytical chemistry, applied physics, or process and systems development guide us as we investigate the structure, properties and behavior of various specialty binders and alloys.

Technical Services

In addition to part manufacturing and machine leasing, 3DEO offers technical expertise in sintering, powder metallurgy, mechanical engineering, materials science, and additive manufacturing. We can assist with part design optimization, material selection, specifications, properties and fabrication characteristics.

Our primary emphasis is the development of new processes and products to meet the needs of customers. Whether in response to a customer request through an application engineer, or as part of our product improvement programs, 3DEO seeks to develop new and improved products and processes that help our customers compete in a fast-moving world.
